This year’s event has had to be postponed from March due to the ground conditions at the campsite, and due to the threat of extreme weather. Due to the postponement, there is a possibility that there may be team vacancies. Go to http://www.soaringfox.co.uk for more details.
Soaring Fox is an annual incident competition hike for Scouts and Explorers held in March. It is based in Leicestershire, United Kingdom, but is open to any Scout troop or Explorer unit.
The hike is around ten miles long for Scouts and around twelve miles for Explorers. Teams of between four and six Scouts / Explorers navigate the route on their own, with no shadow walker, and complete challenges at bases. Teams’ progress is carefully tracked and monitored by an experienced team of radio operators and sweep teams to ensure safety. The venue, route and incidents are all different every year.
